Houghton-Berry quits as Mini GM

Trevor Houghton-Berry, Mini’s inaugural general manager responsible for the brand’s strong success since its launch in 2001, has left the company.

His replacement, former BMW and Mini national sales manager Andy Hearn, stepped into the post on January 1. A spokeswoman for the company says Houghton-Berry’s departure was amicable, and that he left for “new adventures” but the company is unsure of his plans. “He’s done a fantastic job, and we wish him all the best,” she adds.

Hearn has a great deal of experience across BMW Group’s sales, aftersales and marketing departments.

Prior to joining Mini, Houghton-Berry served as fleet sales director at Rover while it was owned by BMW.
